Two Gonsal grooms looking for sponsors

Sally and Claire, two grooms at RSPCA Gonsal Farm, are doing the Longmynd Hike on the 4th October 2014 to raise money for horses at the centre. 

It's a 50 mile competition hike that takes place each October, with trophies for the winning individuals and teams.

The route covers the rugged countryside of South Shropshire and the Welsh Marches, with about 8,000 feet of climbing over eight summits. And all this in just 24 hours with most of the walking done overnight.  

Sally has worked at Gonsal Farm for five years and Claire for seven years. The money they raise will pay for things like veterinary treatment, bandages, medication, feed, rugs and any other basic needs the horses have.

If you can sponsor their efforts to raise awareness of the Gonsal Farm horses and money for their care, please visit their Just Giving page. They'd be very grateful and so would the horses.
